Conservative talk show host Mark Levin pitched an idea to Republicans who are trying to confront President Obama's lawlessness in the White House.

Boycott the State of the Union address.

"They should boycott the State of the Union so half of the House floor is empty," Levin said on his show Thursday evening.

Levin said that Republicans should hold their own State of the Union address and explain "how the president threatens this republic."

"They need to do something bold that will get the attention of some of our fellow citizens, at which the media which will attack it but cannot ignore it," he said, calling them to stand "shoulder to shoulder" on the Capitol steps.

"It would be historic. It would be profound," he said, insisting that the action would demonstrate a clear break with the Democratic party and Obama, and offer voters a choice.

"We’re not talking about civil disobedience here. We’re not talking about doing anything lawless," he said. "Boycott the State of the Union speech. Stand shoulder to shoulder. Give the American people a choice between liberty and tyranny."
